The Browns have seen six different players take snaps at quarterback through seven weeks of the 2016 season.
They now have added a seventh quarterback to the roster.
Cody Kessler remains in the concussion protocol, coach Hue Jackson told reporters Monday. Kessler suffered a concussion in the Browns' 31-17 loss to the Bengals. Jackson said former starter Josh McCown (broken collarbone), who was also knocked out of participation by an injury, has been practicing. Jackson didn't give a firm answer on the veteran's status, saying they would get more clarity on McCown later in the week before the Browns face the New York Jets.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Network's Up To The Minute Live that it would be a stretch for Kessler to be ready to play in Week 8. Knowing McCown's injury history and playing style -- Jackson said he'd have a talk with McCown about protecting himself.
Here are the other injuries we're tracking Monday:
With Brown down, the Cardinals will turn to speedster J.J. Nelson to step up in his place. Arizona replaced fellow wideout John Brown, who missed Sunday's game after being diagnosed with sickle cell trait, with Michael Floyd. The loss of both Browns doesn't help a Cardinals offense that has ebbed and flowed through multiple injuries during the regular season, though John Brown is expected back this week.
- Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer had successful surgery on his broken radius Sunday, Rapoport reported. The team placed him on injured reserve Monday. Jay Cutler (thumb) has been cleared to play, coach John Fox told reporters.
The Redskins did receive some good injury news as Jordan Reed (concussion) has been cleared to practice this week. Offensive tackle Trent Williams' knee is structurally fine.
- Packers cornerback Damarious Randall had surgery to address a core muscle injury and will be out for less than six weeks, Rapoport reported. Dr. William Myers performed the operation last Wednesday, Rapoport added.
- Eagles cornerback Ron Brooks is out for the season with a torn quadriceps tendon, coach Doug Pederson said.
- Panthers cornerbacks James Bradberry (toe) and Robert McClain (hamstring) are back in practice, coach Ron Rivera said. Defensive tackle Vernon Butler (ankle) has also returned to participate.
Running back LeSean McCoy, who left in the middle of Sunday's loss after aggravating his hamstring injury, will continue to be evaluated through the week, Ryan said. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is in concussion protocol and Ryan said he's hopeful defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (hamstring) will be back this week.
- Niners coach Chip Kelly told reporters linebacker Aaron Lynch has a high ankle sprain while cornerback Rashard Robinson has an MCL sprain. Kelly was unsure of a timetable for return for Robinson.
- Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced running back Thomas Rawls could return as early as Week 9 when the Seahawks face the Bills. Rawls has been out since Week 2 with a leg injury. Carroll also said he was "very optimistic" safety Kam Chancellor (groin) could be back for this week's tilt with the Saints.
- Falcons running back Tevin Coleman suffered a hamstring strain Sunday, the team announced. Coach Dan Quinn said the team is still trying to determine the severity of the strain.
